. >> hurricane sandy could be a spoiler down the stretch but which candidate will suffer the bigger punch? set to make landfall in the northeast eight hours from now, but high winds and heavy surf is hammering coastal states. governor romney has a packed campaign schedule holding an event in ohio and stumping in iowa and wisconsin later today. meanwhile, president obama is in a holding pattern, kangs ling events in ohio and florida to return to washington and monitor the storm. the white house canceled the president's trip to wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. but while voters won't see him on the trail they will see him in the role of commander in chief including later this hour when he delivers a statement on the hurricane from the white house. and perhaps voters will be wondering how a president romney might handle the very same situation. one indication comes from a primary debate in june of last year, when governor romney made the case for shutting down fema and passing the responsibility on to the states. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people say do it on a case-by-case bas
to get on its feet in the wake of hurricane sandy president obama will be in new jersey this hour to survey the wost of the damage alongside the state's governor chris christie. the deadly storm responsible for 59 deaths according to the app and 59 billion in damage, ripped up boardwalks and left 2 million without power. governor christie has take an prominent role in the disaster recovery but also been content to share the spotlight with the president. despite the fact that christie remains a surrogate for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republ
schedule on hold to deal with hurricane sandy. obama's traveling to las vegas and then on to colorado. governor romney, meanwhile, is in virginia today, after several days of softened language and tempered criticism. today, romney decided he was done playing mr. nice guy. >> the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he -- he has the campaign slogan which is forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> meanwhile, much of the eastern seaboard from new jersey to connecticut remains a disaster area as the cleanup continues after hurricane sandy. according to the a.p., the storm is responsible for the deaths of at least 74 people. 4.5 million residents still without power. and adding to the frustration, gasoline is becoming an increasingly precious commodity in some area. traffic has become so bad, in new york city, mayor michael bloomberg mandated any commuter car entering the city must have at least three people in it. president obama and governor romney's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show preside
it apart and everyone would cheer and scream. and hurricane sandy comes threw, and he is gone. he is not filling that role anymore hi, see also the guy who in that keynote speech could barely bring himself to say mitt romney's name. it wasn't like he was the most ardent romney lover. >> and even when he was -- he was one of the first guys out of the gate to endorse romney, which i think is surprising. constitutionally they seem like such different people. i have been saying for a while on the show, and i believe this is true. you know, part of my problem with mitt romney's candidacy is i feel he has an incredibly crass view of the american public, and really doesn't hold them in particularly high regard in so far he has changed his position on all of these issues numerous times. he has felt no need to give us any specifics on any of his policy prescriptions. and his assumption is they won't notice. the "washington post" in their editorial board of which you are a member writes through all the flip-flops, there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican presidential nom
wrapped together in a seamless manner. >> yeah. you don't want to be too crass but hurricane sandy has been a political opportunity for the president and to act presidential, to be presidential, and then the embrace by chris christie who gave the keynote speech against him at the republican convention, obviously, sort of a turning point in maybe the last turning point in this election and if i could, also just throw out one other economic stat that we should be paying attention to, we focus on this jobs report but also important is consumer confidence and that has been increasing dramatically, look at august, september and now october, consumer confidence is going straight up. and that's sort of a measure of how people feel about the economy, how things are doing. they're willing to spend again. that probably benefits the president. there's sort of an economic era of good feeling out there right now that's beginning to creep into the electorate. that's probably good for president obama as well. so some good news for the president going into this. but romney just gave a speech and he sa
